The National Churches Trust Community Grants Programme is for grants of between £5,000 and £20,000 for projects which introduce facilities to enable increased community use of places of worship.
Projects must have an estimated cost of at least £25,000 (including VAT and fees) to qualify.
Community applicants can also be considered for a National Churches Trust Micro-Grant in Partnership with the Cinnamon Network. There are additional £2,000 micro-grants available to successful applicants to set up a Cinnamon Network Recognised Project that meets the needs of local people. The micro-grants allow churches to set up social action projects such as CAP Money Courses, Make Lunch and Parish Nursing. Successful churches will also be able to access the support and training provided by Cinnamon Network’s regional Advisers and Trainers.
The first deadline for applications is 3rd July 2017.
